Navy Commander controlled a slow early pace and then had plenty in reserve when it mattered most to capture the $100,000 betfair.com Long Branch Stakes on Saturday at Monmouth Park by 3¼ lengths – earning a chance to race in the $1 million betfair.com Haskell Invitational on July 29 as a result.

Trained by Robert “Butch” Reid and ridden by Angel Arroyo, Navy Commander covered the mile and a sixteenth in 1:46.66, effectively lulling his four rivals to sleep in the 84th edition of the Long Branch Stakes.
